Strawberry Crepes

Since I've been a bit stretched the past few weeks, Larry has graciously thrown in and done more of the cooking. 
(Have I mentioned lately how much I love this man?!) 
He played around with some "kicked-up" versions of his regular pancakes, and then he moved on to crepes. My lips have enjoyed every moment of his experimenting! 
But, my waistline isn't fairing nearly as well!!
He volunteered to make crepes for Sunday school yesterday. We all thought they turned out great!!
He's still perfecting his crepe batter. I'll post the basic Bisquick recipe. 
If any of you are crepe makers and have tips you'd share with him, please pass them along! 

Strawberry Crepes

Crepes:

2 eggs
1 cup Bisquick
3/4 cup milk

Beat eggs slightly; add remaining ingredients and beat just until smooth. If time allows, let batter rest for about an hour.
When ready to cook, pour 2 - 3 tablespoons into hot skillet, tilting to spread evenly. Brown lightly on both sides.

Filling:

1 cup strawberries -- washed and sliced
8 ounces softened cream cheese
2 cups powdered sugar                     

Blend powdered sugar and cream cheese until smooth. This will be fairly thick.
Fold in berries.
Spoon about 2 tablespoons onto each crepe, roll up.

Serve with chocolate sauce and powdered sugar, if you like.

Larry made his crepes on Saturday night and stacked them on a tray with wax paper between layers. Then he wrapped the tray with plastic wrap. It worked perfectly!

  1. This sounds yummy...and easy! Until now, I had never seen crepes made from Bisquick. Would you share it with my visitors? I just started a new page for the best crepe recipe in the world.

    Thanks!
